Webinar Update

WebinarThis decision has been made because cases of COVID-19 are currently high both nationally and in Hertfordshire and schools have been asked to implement additional measures to reduce the spread of the virus.   With these measures in mind, we consider it appropriate that this term’s Headteacher Updates remains in webinar form.  The programme will include the following updates and items:

  • Hertfordshire perspective
  • Ofsted update
  • Safeguarding update
  • HR update
  • SEND update
  • Virtual School update

Community Governor Vacancies in Harpenden

Sauncey Wood is a one form entry Primary School with 186 pupils on roll in Harpenden, Hertfordshire. The School’s mission is to “grow curious minds” with the education and wellbeing of the children at the heart of every decision they make – the school prides itself on supporting each child as an individual, ensuring they make excellent progress regardless of their starting point.

The Full Governing Board, which includes 5 Parent Governors and 5 Co-opted Governors as well as Local Authority and Staff roles, meets for two hours in the evening once per term, and each Governor is a member of one of two sub-committees that meet once per term in the evening as well. They are open to exploring remote governance if a suitable candidate is unable to travel to school.

Two Co-opted Governors Sought

We are currently seeking two Co-opted Governors to join our Board and while we would particularly welcome applications from people with finance/internal audit or education sector experience, we value people from all backgrounds and would love to talk with anyone who feels they can contribute to improving our school’s already excellent performance. It is not necessary to have previous Governor experience as the Board fully supports new members and we subscribe to an excellent Governor training and support package.  The expected time commitment for a Governor is 5-8 hours per month during school term time.

The School

The following extract from the school’s website will give you a feel for the school: Continue reading
